Victorian State Trauma Outcomes Registry and Monitoring Group (VSTORM) home
Victorian State Trauma Outcomes Registry and Monitoring Group (VSTORM)
We gather and interpret information about causes of traumatic injury and treatment from trauma centres across Victoria. We work to improve quality of trauma care across the State, and to identify and reduce major risk factors for trauma in the community. Our aim is to reduce preventable deaths and permanent disability from major trauma.
We're part of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
Funded by the DH and TAC, we’ve generated significant improvements in major trauma care in Victoria since 2001.
We publish scientific studies relating to trauma in Victoria, and generate reports for government and other stakeholders that influence health and safety policy.
To ensure the VSTR captures all major trauma patients in Victoria, broad-based inclusion criteria are used.
